Written to the text of Psalm 81, Exsultate Deo incorporates asymmetric meters and advanced harmonic rhythms to produce a fun but challenging work for a TTBB ensemble.
Exsultate Deo adjutori nostro;
jubilate Deo Jacob.
Sumite psalmum, et date tympanum; psalterium jucundum cum cithara.
Buccinate in neomenia tuba,
in insigni die solemnitatis vestræ.
Sing joyfully to God our strength;
sing loud unto the God of Jacob!
Take the song, bring forth the timbrel,
the pleasant harp, and the viol.
Blow the trumpet in the new moon,
at the time appointed for our feast day.
This work is scored for TTBB ensemble.
This composition is recommended for an advanced ensemble.
